AGV Release two new, Marco Simoncelli Tribute Helmets
Authorised AGV stores now have two helmets on sale, one full face and one jet, which AGV has produced, in agreement with his family, to commemorate Marco Simoncelli.
The full face, based on the GP-Tech, Special Simoncelli Tribute has been restyled from 2011 so that it is even more similar to the helmet that Marco used to wear.
Taking the best from the previous race models and AGV˘s racing experience, GP-Tech is a combination of lightweight, good ventilation and comfort with an innovative and aerodynamic design.
The new graphic design places the Dainese logo on the top of the shell, the San Carlo logo on the chin guard, Simoncelli˘s number 58 and a heart with the colours of the Japanese flag, in memory of the victims of the terrible earthquake that hit Japan in March 2011. The retail price is 749 euros. A dedicated t-shirt is given as a gift together with the GP-Tech Special Simoncelli Tribute.
For scooter riders who want a trendy, urban style product, AGV also offers the Bali Copter Special Simoncelli Tribute helmet, with a new graphic design so that it is much more similar to the one worn by the Italian. The helicopter pilot type visor with aluminium finish side plates, vintage effect leather and soft lining matched to the colour of the leather, create a very refined effect that is superb for urban life. The retail price for the jet helmet is 149 euros.
